Even the pay sites dont list a schematic for that vehicle. The affected parts are not related by system type. The only common point with them is the BCM and the clock spring. You may need to stop at a dealership and see if they will help you with a diagram etc.

The exact location of the low-pressure port varies between different car models. But you can easily find it on any vehicle in just a couple of simple steps:
Start at the A/C compressor. It's attached to the front of the engine, and is powered by a belt and pulley. It can be either at the top or down along the side of the engine, as shown in this example:

One way to tell the compressor apart from other belt-driven parts, such as the alternator, is to turn the engine on but turn the A/C off; the compressor will then be the only pulley that's not turning. The the A/C compressor can also be identified because it has two metal tubes coming out of it.
The two tubes are different sizes. The smaller tube is the high-pressure line. The larger-diameter tube is the low-pressure line, which is the one you're looking for. It runs from the compressor back towards the passenger compartment. Follow that line until you find the one and only valve that sticks out of it, which looks like this:

It should be covered with a plastic cap, which you can unscrew to access the service port.

The best way is to remove both the battery cables from your car battery and leave them off for 12 minutes. Then put the battery cables back on and tighten them up tight. Take your key and put it into the driver door. Lock and unlock the door 3 times. This should deactivate the anti theft system. If you need further assistance troubleshooting your vehicle, then seek out a technician, such as one from YourMechanic, that can assist you with the anti theft system.

The O2 sensor works like:
500mv is neutral,
below 500mv is a POOR or LEAN state.
above 500mv is a RICH state.
On top of this, the O2 sensor is combined with an O2 Heater.
You have to find out if O2 heater is working.
How, With a scanner on a COLD ENGINE and O2 sensor.
Key on engine off, look what the O2 sensor Mv does.
it should go lean or poor below 500mv If it does the heater is working. You have to wait for the heater. It's not instant.

Hope it helps.

If the battery in your car is three to five years old and the car is not frequently run then I suggest you try charging the battery to see if that fixes the problem. You will likely have to replace the battery. Newer cars that have computers are very sensitive to battery voltage.

Leaving a modern vehicle parked for a month will almost totally discharge the battery. Trying to charge a dead battery by driving can cause these symptoms. Charge it with a battery charger and then have both the battery and your charging system tested. You probably need a new battery. Average battery life is just 4-5 years.

Can you check for hvac trouble codes? Some of the national brand auto store will check some codes, for free. I don't know if they can check hvac trouble codes?
Note the diagram, the mode door actuator could have a problem? You can see the wiring circuits. I'd want to check those circuits before saying the actuator is faulty.
The radio/hvac control sends data to hvac control module and that module reacts accordingly.
